Easy Chili Recipe

I found this recipe several years ago, in a Sandra Lee Semi Homemade Cookbook and loved it.  I had mentioned before, that I don’t like chili beans! Since this recipe is an easy Chili recipe that doesn’t call for beans it is by far my favorite go to chili recipe when I am in a hurry. My family loves to pile it on top of hot dogs! I’m not a hot dog kind of girl, but they love it!  If your family prefers a heartier Chili with beans, check out our Best Chili Recipes page.
